As others have pointed out, all 930s are hot right now, although this is obviously not a collector quality car. But, it's a long time CA car with lots of history and was obviously loved, even if not too much lately. I recommend getting it running, not necessarily to cross country-ready status, but at least to demonstrate motor and transmission are sound, and then putting it on eBay with a sensible reserve, lots of pretty pictures, and as much information as possible. A good story and an honest/thorough seller go a long way toward satisfying the heebie jeebies of remote buyers and can drive surprising bidding activity. Be sure to mention/photograph tools, books, compressor, records etc. too if there are any.

Beautiful car, please don't run the risk of seizing the engine.
I hope I didn't give that impression but i would NEVER do that after it has been sitting for 7 years.... even i know that is a horrible idea!! :b Thanks for the advice though, I do appreciate it... I am sure many people have messed up their cars that way over the years

Figured I'd post it just in case.
My conscience wouldn't be clear if I didn't post it and something happened to that car.

Let us know what your mechanic says and when you are going to ebay it. Lots of us on this forum would take real good care of it.

The upper dashboard has been replaced and is a later eightees one from looking at the center AC duct. Not original but an improvement because they are a different type of plastic vinyl that won't warp and swell from being parked in the sun above the AC duct like the early ones. Nicer looking AC duct too but that's just my opinion.

Looks like you got someone who registered on this forum in 2006 to post for the first time in this thread.
Car looks nice.

You do realize that is a grey-market car(as Porsche did not offer the 930 in the US Market during 1980-85)?

It may be worth much more to a European buyer than what it's worth here(if the car has not been properly DOT Federalized)

Just to add to this from the other side of the pond - a fire damaged 930 that required complete repaint recently went on eBay for £35,000 - $60,000 I guess. It had a very honest and good write up by the seller.
Not having the original colour will hurt your car, but I still think you should be looking at the equivalent of $40-50,000 - these cars are hot right now.

Having said that - the fire-damaged car was actually based in the uk which would have helped (although the eventual buyer never actually saw the car or had it inspected I don't think)

looks like it might just end up back across the pond as everything over here tends to get eaten by the oxidation of iron...just adding this so that i get sub'd and can watch its eventual progress to where ever, best of luck with sale

Regardless of the fact that the car has not run in 7-8 yrs it looks very solid, straight and clean. As-is I would not sell for less then mid-high 30s. Color change and unknown exact mileage is never good but the car looks good and a savvy buyer/ mechanic can determine engine condition to assess mileage. EU cars are cool, don't let them down play you on this. In EU they go for the same prices as in USA but in Euros. This car will not last long on Ebay and I can assure you that the Europeans would be all over it. GLWS.

Don't sell yourself short.. It's a Euro. Nice looking car

$60+thous. 2 start.

Heck, I didn't drive my garaged 911SC-3.3 Turbo for over 10yrs.. Need new fuel pumps-new injectors-fuel lines-fuel filter-blah--blah--Had also an electrical problem.. Changed to an MSD-6AL-& COIL...A lot of the work I did myself.. Cost effective. Got everything sorted.

Even if you don't get your electrical problem fixed and minor stuff, I still would start at that price. INMOP-U WON'T LOSE

As much as I wish that was the current market, this is an absurd valuation. If the car had sub 100k miles, you may be closer to that number but 220k+ miles, several re-paints, non-original color, not running in quite some time and most likely in need of a full flush and re-seal, not to mention the electrical issue are all factors that significantly affect value.

No its not...

930's not Euro's were going much higher recently.. Plus many Detective/Pelicans' on this board pointed out serious inconsistencies of body-warped bumpers-rubber- interior-shape-parts-lights.c.. Missed matched body parts from so-called reputable showroom dealers and got what they asked for after ebay bidding was over.

Now pay the guy.

Its not that hard to get a started after 7 plus years if stored properly.. Patience-luck-smarts-blood-sweat tears---It somehow works in the end.

If you have more time than money...then the "forced" route may work, as in might.
Negative-return investments are played out a million times every day all over the world, and here as well in terms of project cars which became financial black-holes(not all but MANY)

Getting all starry-eyed because we identify with these cars doesn't mean or guarantee the current owner may/may not take a financial bath even to get the car ready for sale in the US, never mind what's awaiting if the sale has to be made to an overseas customer if the car is not DOT cert'ed (considering it's GREY-Market vehicle)

If I recall the Euros quit coming in to the US almost 30 years ago. The it's a Euro not properly federalized. In 30 years I bet it has been well sorted. And has been pointed out those Euros started with 300hp.

Thank you for the idea and that may be an option for us.... Get it running and ebay with high reserve... Thanks! Then again we are still not certain if we want to sell as is or get it running and sell..... Thank you

Yes now that you mentioned that the dash was replaced due to the reasons you stated.... it got warped by the sun/heat I guess so he did replace it. Thanks for noticing it was a newer better dash, I guess that's a good piece of information to know... It shouldn't ruin a deal for a buyer I wouldn't think.

Yes I know it's a Grey market car which might be another selling point of the car.... Thank you for your feedback and interest.

Thank you for the information, I really appreciate the feedback... I guess if someone wants the original color of dark grey back, they could paint it again... My dad paid about $7,000 dollars to repaint it silver.... Painted the right way (the car taken apart in full to be sprayed.. Thanks for the response!

Thanks for your words! My dad really LOVED this Porsche and he made sure to get it serviced ANY TIME it needed anything done to it. He always took it to a European specialist in Costa Mesa off of Red Hill.... Near John Wayne Airport. I can get the name if anyone is interested. Thanks again...

(It may take 1-8 weeks to sell depending on what all will be involved but we have got the title in my moms name now and it has been cleaned up... Thanks for the reply...

Yours looks like my twin that just sold. Had a couple of full price offers plus a couple over what it sold for after the auction ended.
